Westminster Bridge: major roadworks start on 29 March

TfL's plans attracted opposition from NHS bosses at St Thomas' Hospital who were concerned that patients would struggle to cross the cycle lane to reach the bus stops outside the hospital.

In response, TfL has agreed to install zebra crossings between the pavement and the bus stop island.

Work will continue until early 2018.

Bus routes 12, 53, 76, 77, 148, 159, 211, 341, 381, 453, 507, N109, N155, N381, C10 and RV1 may be delayed by the works.
